Change appearance/certain map parts (railway)?
« on: March 08, 2020, 22:05:44 »
Hi there,

Is there a way to change the appearance of map items? In my case it's railways which are relatively small on the elevate or elements theme and I'd like to highlight/enlarge them to find them easier.

Thanks!

Hi.

On seeing the title, I was going to suggest themed vector maps.  But on seeing your mention of Elevate / Elements, it appears you're already doing that, using OpenAndroMaps.

Are you willing to do a little tinkering with the theme files?  They're plaintext XML files, so they're theoretically easy to edit, if (granted) somewhat hard to understand.

I've done this in the past, modifying a theme to suit my own sense of aesthetics.  Eventually gave it up, because the theme authors kept improving their work, while my fork stood still.

Hola,

Not quite my level I'm afraid. Not a drama though, was just hoping there's a setting I'm not aware of or so.
